Nike Cortez Nylon

Originally released in 1972, this well known colour-up of the Cortez is back and reissued once again. The Cortez is one of the great Nike running shoes. The upper features nylon and suede materials, which is a combo that replaces the OG leather construction, and hits of leather on the swoosh and heel tab are also in the mix.
